Shrug Therapy

Standard

The other day “(In)Courage” was giving away these cute little cards.  I unfortunately did not win them, but I can still enjoy the message it conveys. 

When I look at this fashion savy woman, I see this scripture.  Proverbs 31:25, “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.”  She is braving the storms of life and it doesn’t even phase her.  It seems she is exercising the “Shrug Therapy”.  It’s a new technique I learned from Joyce Meyer.  When things happen to you and it is out of your control, you should pray (1 Peter 5:7) and ‘shrug’ it off.
In the recent days, my shoulders have been getting a workout as I have been practicing this simple technique.  I am not saying that I win the battle each time, but at least I am equipped to do what I need to do in order to get through each situation. 
I know one day I will be absolutely free from this bondage and I cannot freaking wait.  This excitement is what keeps me pressing on…the strength to finish the race.

I learned something else last night by watching an episode of Joyce…it seems I learn something everyday…(insert sigh).  She said that if things are not going right with you, it might be the time to ask God what the problem is.  She said to not be afraid of what He might reveal.  Some of those seeds you planted in the past may not be reaping a great harvest…so to speak!

Psalm 139:23 says, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.”

When I was searching for the scripture above, I came across the lyrics to a song that I find fitting for my thoughts.

OH LORD, SEARCH MY HEART (Rev. Gary Davis)

Well Lord said search my heart
Oh Lord now search my heart
Well said search my heart, so I’ll know what’s right and what’s wrong


When I’m in trouble said search my heart
When I’m in trouble said search my heart
Well when I’m in trouble said search my heart, so I’ll know what’s right and what’s wrong


When I’m in misery said search my heart
When I’m in misery said search my heart
When I’m in misery said search my heart, so I’ll know what’s right and what’s wrong


Well Lord said search my heart
Oh Lord now search my heart
Well said search my heart, so I’ll know what’s right and what’s wrong

I hope you find the answer you are looking for and together we can walk in this journey “shrugging” the cares of the world away.
